What is Data Anonymization?

It is the process of removing all personally identifiable information from your database, including data that relates to people, canvasses and reported issues.

When should I anonymize my data?

You should anonymize your data when you no longer have a legal basis to retain personally identifiable data, such as after your campaign has ended. This will enable you to comply with Data Protection legislation.

Will I lose all my campaign statistics?

No, your campaign statistics will be collated and is accessible via the Results page.

What about the people who have given me their explicit contact consent?

By default, any person who has given you their consent will be excluded when you opt to anonymize your data. You may include people who have given their consent, by checking the box in the "Anonymize your Data" window.

Can any campaign user activate Data Anonymization?

Data Anonymization is a restricted feature and can only be activated by Campaign Owners and Campaign Managers.
